The New York Yankees signed manager Joe Girardi to a four-year contract extension Wednesday.

The Chicago native was reportedly being heavily courted by his home state Chicago Cubs.

Girardi has led the Yankees to the playoffs in four of six seasons and won the World Series in 2009.

The Yanks are 564-408 under Girardi, that's the best record in the majors during that stretch.
